Prof. Boyd discusses how weather and climate events affect aquaculture and why producers should operate their facilities to protect against such events.
Dissolved oxygen management is the most important requirement of aquaculture pond water quality. DO concentration below 3 mg/L is stressful to shrimp.
Organic matter decomposition causes most of the water quality issues in aquaculture ponds. Bacterial populations are the primary organisms of decay in an aquaculture system, including its organic matter.
Shrimp nursery systems offer the shrimp industry an important opportunity to increase profits, by helping produce strong, healthy and uniform juveniles with significant potential for compensatory growth after their transfer for final pond grow-out. Biofloc technology and water quality are
Manufactured aquafeeds, if improperly managed, can result in undesirable oxygen demand that can reduce dissolved oxygen levels and pollution through effluents, and stress cultured animals.
El promover la circulación del agua durante el día es una estrategia eficaz para enriquecer el agua del estanque con el oxígeno producido por la fotosíntesis, y puede reducir significativamente los costos de aireación suplementaria en la noche. Muchos tipos
Muchos estanques acuícolas requieren aireación mecánica tanto para aumentar los niveles de oxígeno disuelto como para favorecer la mezcla de las aguas ricas y pobres en oxígeno, que también ayuda a prevenir el volteo.
Promoting water circulation during the day time is an effective strategy to enrich pond water with oxygen produced by photosynthesis, and can significantly reduce the costs of night time supplemental aeration. Many types of effective, commercial water circulators are available.
Promoting water circulation during the day time is an effective strategy to enrich pond water with oxygen produced by photosynthesis, and can significantly reduce the costs of night time supplemental aeration.
Proper monitoring of water quality in aquaculture production systems is critical to enable appropriate and timely management decisions. It requires reliable equipment, trained technicians that follow instructions and apply quality control measures, proper reagents and calibrated equipment, and appropriately collected
